states and it was a 41,000 vote gap in west virginia. more than 230,000 in kentucky. the gap got wider when john kerry lost in 2004. you see the pattern here. president obama improved on those numbers slightly in 2008, but still lost both states and his numbers fell off the table, if you will, this past november, the gap nearly doubled to 180,000 in west virginia and he lost kentucky by more than 400,000 votes. but last year, the war on coal had become a familiar theme on billboards, campaign signs and on tv. coal related donors poured more than $12 million into the campaign. 90% of it to republican, believe it or not, but to blame the president's agenda doesn't take in the bigger picture. coal production has dropped because demand is down and easily accessible coal has disappeared. low cost natural gas and fracking threatens to cut them even more. never the less, the politics of the war on coal seems to be solidly on the side of the republicans and senator rockefell rockefeller's retirement creates a prime opportunity for the west virginia gop. shelley cap toe has said she's running a

luther king day, the presidential inauguration celebration as barack obama begins his second term as president of the united states in washington, d.c. they'll have parades, they'll have entertainment, they have music from beyonce, stevie wonder, queen latifah, movie stars like kirsten dunst, alfre woodard, queen latifah. they have to do it on sunday, because legally it has to take place on january 20th. but i have a feeling most people will be too focused on football and honey boo boo to watch any of it. in general, more people claim they watch things like the presidential inauguration than actually do. in fact, we sent a camera on to hollywood boulevard today. we asked people what they thought of the inauguration, even though it hasn't happened yet. and again, this is an event that will take place days from now. so there's no way they could possibly have an opinion on it, but that didn't stop people from having them on tonight's edition of "lie witness news." >> what did you think of the inauguration yesterday? >> it was awesome. it was a real part of history. it was really nice
